Life happens. Life teaches.
Some of the most important things I have learned along the way. By Madeline Johnson
Life happens. Life teaches. We live and we learn.
Some of the most important things I have learned along the way.
Life can be unpredictable. The weather can get dark and stormy. Clouds roll in. No matter what happens, be prepared and stay centered. Don’t let every little thing that happens throw you off balance. You get to decide what rocks your boat, what drives you crazy.
Pay attention to the details. Sloppy and fast requires do overs. You don’t want to have to redo what you didn’t want to tackle in the first place.
Sometimes that thing we don’t want to do – what must be done. Do your best and move on.
We don’t listen deeply enough to each other. Communicate clearly and elegantly. Get your point across. When it’s your turn to listen, listen with all of your senses.
Most of us want bad situations to be over as soon as possible. We will do anything to escape confrontation. We just want to move on. Sometimes they take time to work out. Patience really is a virtue.
When bad things happen, it’s even more important to take extra good care of yourself. Provision yourself well – to ride out the storm.
Think long and hard before you say yes to commitments. Especially long term commitments.
Don’t rush into relationships or situations. Weigh your decisions carefully. Uncover the truth, then take smart, calculated risks.
Always remain grateful, even when all you have is just a little.
You don’t know what you or someone else is capable of doing until they’re really desperate.
Pay attention to your life. Don’t be lazy. Do what needs to be done now.
We are never really blind-sided. Heed the warning signs. Examine the red flags. Listen to the small pains that can become big headaches. Don’t wait. Act now.
Focus on the good that is happening in your life, even when times are dark and bleak.
We all lie. We lie to ourselves. Big lies, small lies, white lies, dark lies. We deceive each other. We do this because we don’t want to hurt ourselves or others. Face the truth. The truth will set you free. Seek what is fact, not fiction in life.
Most of us see situations the way we want them to be, instead of how they truly are – stay in reality. Reality may be harsh, but it is your friend.
Know that when someone is lashing out in anger, they are usually very sad and frightened.
